The finalists will have to record a new line and send it privately to Tampa. The skaters have a deadline October 30th to choose where, when and how they're going to amaze the panel of judges and the finals will take place on November 12th.

For this event they had to look at skaters from all around the world to choose between just 12 that outshined the rest. On the broadcast, they give recognition to all the random videos and filmers that helped people participate and also gave them some prizes for their performances.

The contest went live like this because of the pandemic so it's safe to say that no matter what, skaters and contests will use their creativity to stay connected no matter the circumstances, breaking borders and giving everyone a chance to get exposure.



Tampa AMdemic is working to keep the contest going with the #IndyBestTrick. To participate, show your best trick and posts it on Instagram and tag @SPoTTamp and @IndependentTrucks.
